Terrible Spiral Ham [moved from General Topics]

teabag | Jan 20, 2012 08:34 AM

I bought a Kirkland Spiral Ham from Costco. I carefully followed all the instructions to the tea as I had never cooked a spiral ham before. Unfortunately I had company over and was bitterly disappointed in the dinner. The ham was dry and the meat did not seem to have the wonderful pale pink meat that I so like. The slices are way to thin and I could not even detect any smoked flavour. This morning I cut the remainder up to make sandwich mix and ended up adding smoke flavour to the mix. The rest of the leftovers I will make soup with putting packets in the freezer for soup at a later date.

The instructions were wrap in foil and cook at 275 for the first 2 hours or 15 minutes per pound. Then remove the foil and apply baste for the last 10 minutes.

I will not be buying another one that is for sure. When I bake unsliced ham they always turn out great and I will continue to just slice them myself.
